The mayor of Paris, Bertrand Delanoë, has come under criticism for adjuring city council talks early for the start of Yom Kippur.
Following the early suspension of deliberations at the Council of Paris on Tuesday, council member Gilles Alayrac said, “The mayor devotes too much attention to religious sensitivities.”
The newspaper Le Parisien also quoted Alayrac, a representative of the Radical Party of the Left, as saying that “only the Republican calendar matters.”
